Capo
3rd fret
The single notes are played throughout the song. (I did not write it down for every 
single verse/chorus!) But it kinda does not sound that good if you are playing this with 
only one guitar, so I wrote down the chords for you aswell. (It sounds much better 
with two or more guitars :P)


Capo on 3rd fret

All numbers are according to the capo!
